Join us on November 10th as we host His Excellency Ahmad AlSayed, Minister of State and Chairman of the Qatar Free Zone Authority. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Hamad Al Ibrahim, Assistant Policy Researcher at RAND with focus on Qatar.

H.E. Ahmad AlSayed and Dr. Hamad Al Ibrahim will focus on Qatar’s current economic landscape, addressing the impact of the global shutdown, plans for future growth, and some of the major geo-political shifts in the region. The conversation will also look at what Qatar is doing to draw in more foreign direct investment with the Qatar Free Zone Authority, and what major international companies are either currently established, or looking to establish themselves in the region, and how that’s been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with discussing Qatar’s domestic economic development and international economic partners, the program will focus on the importance of the Qatar-U.S. alliance and how the two countries can continue to strengthen their cooperation in the future.  .
